Ferrofluid large spikes.jpg

This image was originally opposed due to size. A larger version of the image was uploaded, and much of the opposition changed their votes, but not until after the deadline. I'm resubmitting it for nomination. Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 16:00, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Strong support, the previous nomination was incorrectly closed with an obscene level of process-wonkiness. --Cyde 16:06, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
    • The previous nomination was very correctly closed according to the rules. Not sticking to rules makes for very biased rulings. Criticizing is easy I invite anyone to finish of nominations... Het zou u trouwens ook beter staan van niet zomaar te beledigen, maar zelf 'ns de handen uit de mouwen te steken.Lycaon 17:15, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral - This would be a great combination of beauty and educational value (the two maincriteria here, as far as I'm concerned) if there would be more info on the page. What are we seeing? Is the bottom half a reflection? What is the white and is the blue something in the background? How much manipulation has taken place here? Especially that last bit is important here because of the potential educational value. Give the info and you'll probably get my support. DirkvdM 10:15, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
    Good points. I'd like to see more info, too. The bottom part is a reflection. — Omegatron 16:25, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
    I took a look at ferrofluid which explains it and has other pictures too. The blue-and-white is the edge of the glass it is on, I think. It is a liquid which responds to magnetic fields or something like that. --Fastfission 03:09, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
Gmaxwell's user page has another photo that makes clear what the blue and black are - two sides of the glass it's on (so you were close). I've put a request his talk page. DirkvdM 08:14, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I have no problem with the fact that this image is not completely self-explanatory, but rather piques the interest in exactly what a ferrofluid is. William Avery 13:06, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very pretty. Though this one is pretty extreme, too! It's really hard to pick amongs Gmaxwell's ferrofluid photos.. --Fastfission 03:09, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
